After a disastrous pit at the 2016 Orlando Regional, Team 4592 decided to make a change. During the 2016 offseason, we looked at other teams to see how they organized their pits and we became inspired by Team 973’s Super Pit! We spent the whole summer designing the Pit Carts, the next few months we spent acquiring the needed materials from our generous sponsors. The students then proceeded to assemble the Pit Carts and finished the build at the end of build season, just in time for the 2017 South Florida Regional. Due to our immaculate pit and superior organization, we won the 2017 Judge’s Award at the South Florida Regional and the 2017 Imagery Award at the Orlando Regional.
A huge thank you to all of the generous sponsors who helped make the Pit Carts possible: One Firefly, MetalWorks, Alro, Bullseye, American Fasteners, Decimal Engineering, Lowe’s, and SolidWorks.
